Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park has reopened after being closed due to floodwaters. The floodplains north of Kudriemitchie have finally dried out.
Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park is one of the most spectacular of South Australia's natural attractions. The park is a pristine water world made up of channels, waterholes, lakes, internal deltas, shallow floodplains and interdune corridors and swamps.
This arid wetland plays host to a diversity of wildlife including native birds, fish, reptiles and frogs and transforms into a breeding ground for an enormous number of migratory birds from around the world.
Birdwatching, photography, bushwalking and canoeing are popular ways to enjoy the park's wilderness setting.
Co-management of the park involves a partnership between the Government of South Australia and traditional owners to share responsibility and decision making for the strategic management of the park. A co-management committee (in accordance with a co-management agreement between the Minister for Sustainability, Environment and Conservation and the traditional owners, Yandruwandha and Yawarrawarrka people) co-manage Malkumba-Coongie Lakes National Park. Per vehicle entry and camping fees apply.
